    Firstly a big thank you to Raven. Seeing this this morning, in a Christmassy, gifty mood, I was THIS close to ordering it online and going to pick it up tomorrow.

    Thought it might be worthwhile mentioning the following however.

    I checked the Which report for these TVs. Unfortunately they hadn't reviewed the 42" model, but had done so for the 47" model (47LG7000) and it only got a score of 57%, with notable drawbacks being "average picture and sound"

    They did have a few good things to say about it also, but personally I think that if you're going to get a TV that big, it's worth ensuring that the picture and sound quality give you the best experience possible... so I'm going to behave and hold off on getting this one.

    Thanks again, Raven, but I think it might be worth holding out for one with better reviews.

    That said, this certainly IS a fantastic price, so if you're more interested in the specs than the quality, then it's a brilliant Grabbit!!

    Happy Christmas, all!!
    ** I swear my spending has only gone UP since I discovered the MSE Grabbits!! :rotfl:
    (But at least I'm getting it all cheaper!!)**

    Explain why its "No Contest" between 50/100Hz?
  • ratboy01
    i don't know why it's 'no contest'

    but if you watch a lot of sport or fast moving tv then with 100hz the moving objects will be less blurred because the screen will be refreshing at a faster rate; where as with 50hz the objects may be blurry around edges basically all tvs will have 100hz soon as minimum in my opinion.

    i've heard of 200hz on some top end tvs.

    i've still got old bush 32" crt

    ....and the standard definition picture on an old CRT TV is usually far better than today's LCD's or Plasma.

    Unless you subscribe to High Definition TV you won't notice a massive amount of difference

    this is a great tv, forget what which syathe sound quality is superb for a flat panel. i'll be buying one of these tomorrow, can't believe which say its average i have seen it in the flesh and it is superb. just goes to prove my point i have made many times before that which are a load of bollox,go see the tv for yourself rather than a rpeort written by a journalist and then decide

    better getting john lewis if they offer this tv to pricematch. and get the 5 year warranty free.

    LCD and Plasma tv's are notorious for going wrong and if it was to go faulty then you can expect to pay hundreds to get it fixed.

    currys / dixons warrantys on LCD and Plasma are in the region of £200 (guessing!)
    so with this its not much of a deal.

    thats because they cover you for accidental damage
